state. four years ago, mr. obama won 18- to 29-year-olds nationwide by 66% to 32%. a margin so large, young people were credited with putting him over the top in several key states. >> are you registered to vote? >> woodruff: surveys suggest he's sure to capture the majority of the youngest voter block again. but after four years of watching the president grapple with the realities of governing, they're not expected to give him another two-to-one win. 18-year-old freshman noel fisher says getting his peers to vote for president obama in 2012 is crucial. >> i would say is the biggest the largest split between ideology between the republican candidate and the democratic candidate the republicans right now are trending extreme conservative and it's just i don't think we have room for any of those extremes in our nation >> woodruff: but for all the enthusiasm of these obama volunteers, national surveys of young voters show a more complex picture. john della volpe is director of polling for harvard's institute of politics. >> it's almost night and day judy. you know whereas young people f
% in the less than four years president obama's been in office. what's the president doing about all that? well, he's, of course, campaigning out there all over the country. earlier today he stopped by kent state university in ohio, a place he visited back in 2008. let's take a walk down memory lane and see what he said. >> when bill clinton was president the average family income went up $7500. $7500. since george bush has been president, it's gone down $2,000. think about that. that's a $9500 swing. $9500. that's money out of your pocket. that's money going out of this country because we're borrowing it from china to send to saudi arabia to buy oil. that's what's added $4 trillion to our deficit. i mean, think about that. so we've created a mountain of debt for the next generation that they're going to have to pay off. >> sean: remember, under obama's watch household income has plummeted more than 8%, and he's added more debt than almost all of his predecessors combined. the president doesn't want to talk about his record because it's a record of failure. he's been disengaged from the moment
know president obama won four years ago here. if he can't do that, it's going to be very tough. these are states that romney has to flip back to the republican column if he wants to be elected president. >> jim, one of the things i noticed, too, that's different here, virginia's unemployment rate is much lower than the national average. you're talking about a national average of over more than 8%, virginia hovering in the 5% range or so. is his message of creating more jobs. is that really going to resonate in virginia? >> reporter: that is why i think, suzanne, we heard him talking about defense jobs. as he was putting it here a few moments ago, if the sequestration cuts happen -- you hear it here in the local media. while the economy is doing quite well, better than the national average. we heard the governor of this state, bob mcdonnell, tout this state's economy even at the republican convention, there are worries about defense cuts and what that would mean to the local economy. that's why i think you heard mitt romney tailoring his message to that particular issue. this is
president obama leading in io bvein ie mtiol colorado showing president obama leading in colorado by four points. nationally, president obama has seen his lead rebound in recent days. in the gallup daily tracking point, he initially got a six-point bounce out of the democratic convention. that lead evaporated in e ys n pdebaas tow au regained that six-point lead as if he just did the conventions all over again. with just 41 days left until the election, a snapshot of the race is very clear. in fact, we do these polls every day and it's almost starting to seem static at the presidential lel. thswstpolls that we do every day, pretty much the map always look like this. president obama leading in all of the swing states or at least leading in almost all of them. a standard caveat, of course, is that anything could change. but the longer that it goes on without changing, as long as it starts to look like is is calcifying as the state of the , ci nhare than half the country is already voting, half the swing states, already voting right now, while that is happening, if that part of the race is
will change dramatically because he'll ha the case we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> so that first debate is next wednesday in denver and did you know that early voting has for the first time today voting in a swing state, iowa. guess who's there john king. iowa city, iowa. john, are you seeing many early voters where you are? >> reporter: we have seen quite a few of them brooke. we had a camera here in iowa city and des moines earlier today. i wouldn't say it's gangbusters but modest lineseople saying pretty good loins and if you look at the stickers, the t-shirts a lot them are obama voters so you would say score the first day of early voting in iowa for the president and a cautionary note though. there's a strategic difference of the republicans and the democrats. democrats early investing in early voting and i talked to steve grubs saying the democrats won the early voting in 2010 and did quite well in the statewide races and legislative races and there's a difference of how important early voting is and votes in 2010 cast early. 35 states and t
voters think mr. obama would do a better job. a cnn average of four recent ohio polls found 51% of voters support president obama. 44% favor mitt romney. one of romney's events wednesday was a manufacturing round table with business leaders and tv host micro. he's a man known for taking on tough jobs. in ohio he's overshadowed by the two other men that's even tougher. in washington i'm emily smith. >>> and for some more numbers, campaigned two on university poll says president obama was wide lead over mitt romney in the swing states of ohio, florida, and pennsylvania. in this case the president leads romney in ohio by ten points, leads in florida by nine points and in pennsylvania by 12 points. president before the united niegss today said the u.s./european union have entrusted themselves. the hall was not full as speech. the u.s. made demonstration voiced part of the speech. spokesman for the yieted nation un ambassador said it was unfortunate it was given the platform on yon kippur the holiest day in jud yichl. >>> magnitude 2.4 hit the area just after 3:30 p.m. the communities. no dama
-point margin for barack obama over the last three or four months. what that means in is the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority vote again is actually quite plausible based on these and other data. that looks like is what is going to get you. if he doesn't get 80, he will get 78 or 79. then the road at the bottom scioscia the breakout for college grad, some college or less or working class. the right and figures for likely voters, obama is doing a little bit better among white college graduate voters than he did in 2008, a to point margin, close to four points again. in the some college or less grip, he improved by 13 points which is somewhat better than he did in 2008 when he lost by 18. so remember what i was saying about the outlandishly large margins that mitt romney probably needs to be competitive among white working-class, the run up among white working-class voters. he's not anywhere close. that's the bottom line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney. you might see a margin of 22 points but nowhere do you see the ou

used to be a sure thing. that changed four years ago with president obama the first hopeful to win that state in 40 years from the democrats. the latest polls give the president a slight edge. the real clear politics average has him leading governor romney by 4.5 points. most rates show the race in the margin of error. john roberts is live in springfield, virginia. john, governor romney today focused on the military and veterans in that area. >>reporter: he is working hard to put this back into the red column, talking to a group at the men legion post today. he told them about the potential effect of defense cuts in the looming sequestration saying it could result in the loss of 136,000 jobs here in virginia but it would profoundly affect military readiness and america's security. >> troubled and dangerous world we live in. the idea of cutting our military commit my by a trillion is unthinkable. and devastating. when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >>reporter: mitt romney said he does not know how president ob
shows how important virginia is. remember, president obama, then senator obama four years ago, he became the first democrat to win virginia in a presidential election since 1964. and alina, one part of mitt romney's strategy of winning the white house is taking back some of those states that traditionally voted republican like virginia, north carolina, and indiana. all states that the president won four years ago. >> and also ohio as we were talking about earlier, another important battleground. no republican has ever won the white house without winning ohio. >> reporter: exactly. >> also want to talk a little bit about something that romney likes to talk a lot about on the trail, which is his experience in business and how he's best to lead the economy back into recovery. but what's interesting is that he's actually losing his edge in at least three swing states on the economy, right? break down those numbers for us. >> reporter: this is fascinating. because what is the story behind those top-line polls? what's the numbers behind the numbers? a lot of it is the economy. a lot of polls n
real trouble so i'm afraid i have to go negative. (laughter) almighty father, almost four years ago president obama promised hope and change, but a lord and creator of the universe was this the change you wanted. the democrats left you off their convention platform and they want to force your servants to provide birth control to ther who of babylon. (laughter) obama punishes the job creators. just imagine how he'll treat the job creators. it's time to send obama a message-- maybe a river of blood or locusts, or losing ohio. (laughter) because barack obama isn't just wrong for the nation, he's wrong for creation. so, god, remember. on november 6-- a day which you are already in and will always be in for a time of eternity-- vote mitt romney. but bring photo i.d. because they're really cracking down. i'm stephen colbert and i pray this message. we'll be right back. (cheers and applause) (cheers and applause) >> stephen: welcome back, everybody, my guest tonight has written a new book which he describes as an existential detective story. he never tells you who did it because what's the
at "real clear politics" average and that gives you a better sense which has obama up about four. even if you take claims at face value, jon, if he is up by eight or 11 points in any of these polls, even if you were to take out the possibility of oversampling, which i don't think is happening and i could explain that later, necessarily, the, he is still up by so much even if they were oversampling he is still ahead. he is still ahead by four or five points. it will not benefit the republicans to pretend this is just all the pollsters helping obama. jon: well, judy, the one of the points republicans like to make that there was a 7 percentage point advantage among democratic voters who turned out in 2008. so if the pollsters use that model, if they weight all of their polls by democrats plus seven, those were the numbers, four years ago, they're saying it is not accurate because you're not going to get the same kind of democratic enthusiasm and democratic turnout in 2012 that you had in 2008 when barack obama was a new, unknown and very exciting contender. >> well that is the key questio
is happening to america in the last four years? apparently not. according to stephanie cutter, president obama's deputy campaign manager. >> what you find most often with women, they are not concerned about what happened in the last four years. >> kimberly: that is not what ann romney has been hearing. she spoke to greta last night. >> i will tell you four years ago, women that would speak to me had a lot of different concerns on their mind. this time around, it is nearly universal. that they are talking about jobs, the economy, their future. they are talking about debt, entitlement and everything that is so critical we make sure that we get ahold on this economy. >> kimberly: eric, wouldn't it seem to make a lot of sense that women would support the candidacy of mitt romney because hof his experience with the economy, with jobs, with trying to put food on the table, money in the bank? >> eric: again, i don't understand why people are voting for barack obama. women, single women are voting for barack obama overwhelmingly. look what is going on. we talked about it how many times? 500,000 fewer
for mitt romney. flee weeks ago both candidates were tied. obama has pulled four points ahead in the average. this isn't stopping diehard republicans who say the mainstream polls have a liberal bias. look at dickmorse.com. even rick perry is jumping on on the bandwagon. he's plugs unskewed.com. it compiles existing polling data and meshes it with the rasmussen poll and voila, big leads for romney. if you look at the unskewed.com average it has romney leading by eight points. >> it's going to be a landslide. >> rasmussen has obama ahead by 4. i think quickly there are things to separate two different things here with theories they put out there. one is the peer con sear see side. there's a plot by the liberal media to undermine romney. >> which would never happen. >> when fox news polls are showing it, i don't know. the other thing is there's seeds of an argument about systemic bias in polls. they're getting it wrong because there's too few democrats and republicans. i've heard that from democrats in polls in 2004, the other way. i heard it from republicans in 2008, when obama
by the end of my first term in office. >> dana: four years later, president obama in front of the yellow curtain that gutfeld hates and failed to deliver on the promise. does he take responsibility for not getting it done? >> as president, i take responsibility for everything to some degree. when i came in office, i inherted the biggest deficit in our history. over the last four years the deficit has gone up. but 90% of that is consequence of two wars that weren't paid for. prescription drug plan that wasn't paid for. worst economic disaster since depression. >> dana: he got four pinocchios. >> greg: nobody is buying this. this is presidential equivalent of the dog ate my homework or the president ate my dog who ate my homework. let it go. it's over. both parties are to blame about spending. but he tied a rocket to it. you know? that is a fat guy tweaking. >> do we even know what kind of dog? >> dana: i don't really -- >> eric: talk walking down the street -- >> greg: who speaks for eaten dog. >> bob: good example of -- do go ahead. >> eric: to give you an example. okay. so -- [over talk
? caller: no. you did not hear anything about the four americans being killed. obama is out campaigning and four americans were killed. host: the polls do not play into any part of your voting? do not accept them? caller: no. not after watching the news media. it is a disgrace to news media. host: up next is liz, college park, maryland. on our line for democrats. caller: i have a concern about recent events about -- comments regarding iran. ii said iraq had weapons of mass destruction. the secretary of defense said there were no weapons of mass destruction. now, 1 million of iraqis are dead, and i found we are being told the same lines that iran is on the verge of getting weapons of mass destruction and we should draw red lines and go to war with them. we have been down this road before. most of them are men, women and children. innocent people being killed for no reason at all. host: the leaders will be addressing united nations today. in the canoe the libyan president address in a speech today at 4:15 today on c-span and c-span.org. the libyan president will address the united nations
last four years. i believe fact checking was created just for president obama. and i hope he does decide to spend his time correcting him because, quite honestly, most people know what an incumbent president has or has not done and what people want from a challenger is what are you going to do that will be better? >> well, alicia, is the strategy here that they want to have romney act as though the president lies so much and is full of falsehoods that if he does well in the debates, you really can't trust what he is saying, therefore, he's not doing well and to give romney a way of aggressively going after the president so he doesn't have to deal with specific policy things that can be taken apart by the president? >> yes and yes. he is dealing with the joe wilson school of debate, something we've seen from romney before. he tries to newt traize his own weaknesses by turning them against president obama. how much time it gives the obama campaign to prepare and to ji jut sue it. now obama can go into that debate ready to talk about the many lies and misspeaks of the romney campaign
, the national survey, the race is tied. a dead heat 46% 46%. on this day four years ago, rasmussen had mr. obama up by 5 points over john mccain. 50%, 45%. a case could be made that mitt romney is doing better than john mccain did. but that might be misleading. the presidential race is going to come down to just a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to
poll has mitt romney trailing president obama. the real clear politics national average show as four point lag. is romney letting this election slip right through his fingers? and importantly, why did he dial back his tax cut yesterday? if i don't know what romney's tax plan is, then i don't know how he's going to reach the middle class. in response to mirant last night and my it is pleasure with what mr. romney said, a key very senior mitt romney person calmed me today and says that mitt misspoke on dialing back tax cuts. and this senior person said mitt would like a mulligan and you know what, following beings, i'll give him a mulligan for now. but he has got to stay on message. and that importantly includes next wednesday's crucial debate. it could be his last chance. let's bring in our guest to comment on this. we have harry melver, steve moore oig and phil reducer. steve, i went off the rails and went off hfr-i was so angry at this wall street news story story. romney tempers tax plan, dialing back his tax code, suggesting that he's going to remove tax deductions from the middle
now run four battleground state polls of 11 states that were won by president obama in 2008 and they are up for grabs this time around. the last poll i believe had president obama 47, 45 in the battleground states. and the headline was isn't this great? well no context was provided. president obamas won those 11 states why over 54% to 45% last time around. >> bill: real quick, the carl rove board where is the race in ohio and florida in your opinion? >> well, toss-up in both states. >> bill: toss-up? it could go either way at this point in history? >> sure. >> bill: all right, mr. rove. we appreciate that next on the run down the governor of ohio john kasich will tell us what's going on in the buckeye state. dick morris and dennis miller warming up in the bullpen. both have provocative things to tell us upcoming. >> bill: continuing now with lead story. joining us from columbus the governor of ohio john kasich. before we get to that i'm bortd when people see you they will think i'm off because you obviously before you were the chief executive. >> 10 years. >> bill: that's ri
debates have not moved the numbers all that much. four years ago when barack obama debated john mccain, mccain was down by five points when he went into his debate, and when he came out of the debate, he was down by six points. virtually no change. i think events on the ground, perceptions of the economy, economic news, perhaps things from the middle east still could have a bigger impact than these debates. cheryl: scott rasmussen, it's fascinating to see what your numbers are showing us, and they have been changing over the last several weeks. scott, thank you. >> thank you, cheryl. cheryl: well, still to come, everyone, ann coulter is going to be joining me with a look at her new book, "mugged." and coming up next, getting criticized from the inside. william isaac is going to tell us how washington failed america during the massive financial crisis. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cholesterol as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios for many, nexium helps relieve heartburn symptoms ...but you still ha
relentlessly pounding president obama about the economy. he did it again today in ohio. >> i don't believe we can afford four more years like the past four years. >> maybe they haven't been happy the last four years. maybe they were disappointed with obama, but generally, they think we're on the right path. >> reporter: we found people at union square willing to discuss the merits of both candidates. >> he's been president for four years, and we haven't seen the turn around that he had promised. i'm not sure why the numbers aren't correlating to his performance? >> reporter: some republicans aren't buying the latest poll results. >> i don't think the election is over by any way shape or form. i think it's going to go down to the wire. >> reporter: next week's debate may be critical for romney. >> you have to get people at your side. the debate is key. >> reporter: corey cook says the bar is actually low for romney. >> he really needs to have a positive debate performance, where he appears presidential. that basic standard, does this guy look like he can be president is one he hasn't met over
they haven't been happy the last four years. maybe they were disappointed with obama, but generally, they think we're on the right path. >> reporter: we found people at union square willing to discuss the merits of both candidates. >> he's been president for four years, and we haven't seen the turn around that he had promised. i'm not sure why the numbers aren't correlating to his performance? >> reporter: some republicans aren't buying the latest poll results. >> i don't think the election is over by any way shape or form. i think it's going to go down to the wire. >> reporter: next week's debate may be critical for romney. >> you have to get people at your side. the debate is key. >> reporter: corey cook says the bar is actually low for romney. >> he really needs to have a positive debate performance, where he appears presidential. that basic standard, does this guy look like he can be president is one he hasn't met over the last two or three weeks. >> reporter: there are three scheduled debates, the first one at the university of denver one week from tonight. ken wayne, ktvu, cha
as so determined by the supreme court. >> and then this week romney mangles his message by saying obama didn't raise taxes in his first term but might in his second term. >> he's got one new idea. i admit he has one thing he did not do in his first four years he said he's going to do in the next four years which is raise taxes. >> which is it, mark? did he or didn't he or is he about to and hasn't yet? >> i will probably have a more charitable interpretation. >> your interpretation is the one we want. >> my sense is he was talking about raising marginal tax rates rather than raising any taxes. >> that's charitable, you're right. >> i will say a version of what i said before. he's not at the point where he can afford either to create distractions through loose rhetoric or to have a muddled message that doesn't give people a sense of where his heart is, as you said at the beginning. i'm just amazed that at this stage he's been a candidate for five years now that he's still just being that sloppy in a way that distracts from trying to drive a male message that could help him make up the ga
four years will be better for you than the first four years of an obama presidency? i think that the economy -- you can look at some macrostatistics and say things are better in some ways, but i think there are still people who have a lot of doubt about what's going to happen next. talk to anybody who is doing focus groups now and ask people in groups, what does the president plan to do in another four years? people don't know. and so mitt romney still has an opportunity, i think, to not only say -- >> you can say the same about mitt romney. >> you could, you could, but the president has got a record of four years that a lot of americans aren't happy with. he's not coming close to driving that message. he's still doing one event a day. still more likely to do a bad television interview that says nothing or creates a negative story or has some old video pop out. this is not left wing pundits or reporters who don't like mitt romney. this is what every republican i talk to is saying, scratching their head saying how can he continue to waste another day? i'm looking at my calend
. we can't afford four more years of the last four years, all right? >> reporter: back in 2008 virginia ended up going to obama. he was the first democrat to take the state since 1964. >> troy, both candidates have new ads out. tell us what we can expect to hear in the new campaign ads? >> reporter: let's start with the obama campaign. they release lad scaightsing new ad today -- scathing new ad today. basically it uses those hidden camera comments of romney. here if -- it is. >> there are 47% of the people who believe they are victims, who believe government last a responsibility to take care of them. >> reporter: romney is hitting obama on his energy policy. >> obama wages war on cold. using more coal every day. now your job is in danger. >> reporter: we've also learned the romney campaign will be slightly upping their ad buys in key battleground states. >>> this next story, certainly not a political ad you would have seen a few years ago. the king of cool, sometimes the king of cursing, samuel l. jackson is reaching out to voters in a new ad. jackson tells people to wake the "f" up.
